Isolated straight line wind damage, mainly in the form of downed trees, was
found across Montgomery County (particularly the southern 2/3s part of
the county). However, the it appears a definitive tornado track started in
western Conroe from in and just west of the Canyon Creek subdivision off of
Longmire Rd. This small tornado tracked generally west-northwest to the
south of FM 3083 for about a mile. The strongest winds, likely reaching
90 mph /EF1 range/, was near the start of the tornado just to the east of
Longmire. Most of the rest of the tree damage was consistent with EF0 winds
before the tornado dissipated.

Ef scale: the Enhanced Fujita scale classifies tornadoes
into the following categories.

EF0... weak... ... 65 to 85 mph
